Hi, guys. Welcome back to my channel. Or if your name is Mr First time here, welcome to much channel. Today I'm filming a video that I just I feel like a need to film because I get so many Diem's from you guys on Instagram and I do I always reply to them So if you have any questions outside of this video, don't hesitate. Send me a message. I'll be happy to answer that for you, but I get a lot of questions from some of you guys that are gonna be in college next year. Or maybe in the next two years, asking about UK, you asking about college? This and that is just all related to going into college. You guys are probably juniors or seniors. I know that is a really stressful Tom for picking your college, and there's so much that goes into picking a college. I did not have a YouTube channel when I picked my college and went through the whole process of applying. So I just wantedto like back up. Three years ago, when I was a senior and applied to colleges where I plot where I got accepted, denied how I chose which college to go to things that you should think about before you pick little stuff like that that you might not be considering right now because that's actually gonna be super important when you go to choose your college, because that's gonna be where you spend your next 42 possibly more years if you go on to grad school and that you want to be happy. I just want to give you guys my vice on it and kind of take you through my experience and it's gonna be literally all over the place because I have no idea how where I want to start, what I want to get into over where I want to finish. And if this quality is not great, I'm really sorry. I'm filming on my phone. I left my camera at school. I'm going to get into for a babble on anymore. So the first thing I'm gonna talk about is where I applaud Thio. I think we're in the Tom right now where if your seniors or maybe even juniors, if you're ahead of the game where you're applying to colleges because I know that I applied September October November is when I was applying to colleges. I had this idea that I knew I did not want to go in state. I have never wanted to thank Kentucky. I always knew that I wanted to leave. I didn't really want to apply anywhere in Kentucky to begin with, but I did. My mom was like, I really need to just apply just in case. So I've hide to Eastern Kentucky University of Hard to the University of Kentucky, the University of Alabama, which was my top pick. I started an application to Coastal Carolina University in South Carolina. Never applaud to Clemson University. It was definitely one of my top picks. I'd looked into it for, like, two years to the true leading program and talked to some of them. I don't know why I never applied. I think around the time that I was gonna clock, I kind of already have my mind made up between two schools. Maybe I didn't apply to University of Florida, but I think I wanted to because I always wanted to live in Florida. But I think in my head I was like that's just too far to be my first year away from home. I don't think I put I think the only college is actually applied. Thio was E k u u K and U A I. The reason I never finished my coastal application. If you guys were wondering, I just kind of decided like That's not for me. I taught four picks were definitely Ikea UK album and Clemson, and then I never went through with Clinton because I'd already narrowed it down. By the time I kind of decided that was in my top four, we went on a campus visit with my one of my high school teachers. My whole senior class meant we went Thio. If you're from Kentucky, you know these schools. If you don't. If you're not from you, look, you probably don't know all of them. We went to Union College, University of the Cumberland's Ta your UK affluent somewhere else? Maybe not. But we went to those schools and of course, everybody and our little SR heads was like, Oh, we're all going to UK. So I don't know what after that visit that changed my mind and I was like, Oh, you k all the way Baby, I think It's just because I was influenced by the people around me and everyone was talking about UK and literally my whole life. I'd always said I hate Lexington, Kentucky. I don't want to go to UK. I don't like you, K. I don't I don't want to go there But after we went on that visit, I was like, I'm going to use that So I applied had not applied for UK yet. But I applaud after that visit to U. K. And I was already definitely interested in E K. You long before we went on that visit, because I had been going to their children and clinics for most of my junior and senior year. Already knew a lot of people. They're from my hometown and I knew everybody on the Chilean team, and at the time I knew I wanted to go to a college where I knew people like I wanted to come in already known people. I don't know what that was important to me, but it was. I think I applied to Alabama first, and I did get accepted there. I got my acceptance letter and I was like, so real, like, Oh my God, I was so excited. And then I got the acceptance letter to Eastern. I was excited about that, too, Like just kind of a assumed I was gonna get accepted. But I just I got the letter and then, like, I still hadn't heard back from UK, and I was like, Huh? Okay. Finally got the letter. I was not even home. I don't know where I was, but my mom takes me to look your letters here from you can. I was like, You can open it so she doesn't text me back. And she was like, You didn't get accepted. And I was like, Well, I like their state university luck. I said, did Alabama I gotta tell you, why don't I get accepted? Okay, Well, when we looked at the letter, I had applied for undergraduate school at U K. And also applied to be in the health science program at UK, which I normally wouldn't have applied for until I was already at school in UK and in that major and ready to be in the program, which would be not my freshman year. So really, the declined letter, I guess whatever the non acceptance letter that I got from UK wasn't for undergrad, but it was for that program that iPod for on accident Later, I got my acceptance letter to UK. So I got accepted to all three colleges that were my top. So before I go any further into that, I want to talk about Ma Ma stats like my g p a mice t score because I think a lot of people are concerned about that for me. I don't know why my brain was like this, but, like scholarships like, I just I don't know, I kind of assumed like to get a scholarship. You had to have a 35 a ct a 4.0 g p a. And like I knew I had already ruined that for myself. So I was not concerned with getting a scholarship at all, and I kind of already rolled that out of the question, and that was very stupid of me. If I could go back and talk to myself, I would have been like, You need to get your head in the game, your freshman year of college. You need to really your high school. You need to really try and make your GP as good as you can because you can get scholarships for out of state tuition. I don't It didn't apply, Did not register in my head. So I'm just gonna wait there high school, whatever. Like as long as that past a past and our high school was very easy. I'm doing a lot of guys. I just didn't really hair about my GP. And when it came time to take a c T. I just I'm not a good test taker. I'm not getting mad. I kinda just didn't care. So I took the A C t. And I got an 18 and never took it again. I was like, That is good enough for me. It got me accepted into the three colleges that I wanted to go to. Yeah, I don't know. My g p a was. I would assume it was around a three point something. I don't know how to know what my house cozy pair was. That that's how much I don't care. I don't keep up with it. I have no idea. If you're very concerned. More than likely, you're going to get accepted into, like, a bigger university like that. If you're trying to get into Harvard or you know a smaller school really gonna have to try harder, let Clemson. If I would applaud, I don't think I would've got accepted because I know their standards are a little bit hard moving on. It kind of came down to having to choose. I think it was February. Alabama still loved it. I was like, I want to go there so bad I'm not gonna lie to you guys had a boyfriend that was in Kentucky and I really think that I let that kind of swaying me more towards staying at home, which is very stupid. So if that's you, don't let anybody, anybody influence you except for you, because I think I listen to my friends, to him, to my mom, to everyone that wanted me to stay here more than I listen to myself because I knew I wanted to leave, but because other people were staying or other people wanted me to stay, I think that's weighed me more towards staying. I never once took an official visit to the university of album, uh, regret that, like so much I regret it because I know, if I would have done that, I would have went there. And I took the UK You visit with my school and I took the UK visit with my high school, and then I would back in toward UK alone with some of my friends that we thought we were going there. None of us ended up going there, but I never took an official visit to you. I went there last for cheerleading clinics once, just to be on camp just to like visit. But I never took an official school, so I do regret doing that. So now I'm gonna get into the next thing before I talk about how a pick and that would be to take visits like anywhere you're even considering going. You need to visit it. You need to look into everything about it. It's kind of important to know, like, what's around you, not even just in the school, but like in the city, you need to know what kind of what you're looking for. We're looking for a small school or big school. If you're looking for a sports school, you have a need to know, like what you're looking for in a school, and then you need to visit them so you can see, like, if you're gonna get what you're looking for. Not if I could go back and redo it. I would have applied. Definitely would have went album if I could go back to New Day because for me, like, I should have went to a bigger school where I would no less people where Be more challenging. I wish I would've went to an SEC schools in the South because I think that what I really wanted and I knew that's what I wanted. But I just let other people persuade me differently. Know what you want to make a list, I guess, is what I'm trying to say. Like I want this. I want this. I want this. I don't want this. It's kind of easy for you to say. Okay, well, I know I don't want to know anybody at the college that I'm going to, so I'm probably gonna go out of state 12 hours away. Or you can say I know that I want to know a lot of people that I'm going to say. You're probably gonna go to a smaller college that's closer to home for E K u. Like I said, I knew I knew a lot of people there, and there were a lot of people going from my hometown with me, freshman year at the time. I loved the thought of that. I was like, Yes, and more people I know, the better. I don't know. I thought you could use a lot bigger than actually is. And I know so many people there now that I love. I love everybody that I know. They're like I kind of hate knowing that many people in college It sounds very weird, but it's just I don't know. I think I just needed to go to a bigger school. But that's not what this is about. This is about how to pick your college, and I'm trying Thio tell you guys my mistakes so that you won't make some mistakes. I did so after you take a visit and it comes time to pick. So how I picked was I told myself, Okay, I'm gonna go to Ikea. You I'm going to go for one year and I'm gonna get my feet wet living two and half hours away from home and then I'm gonna transfer. I'm gonna transfer to University Alabama, Sophomore year. I wasn't thinking my brain was not processing anything. Obviously, that didn't happen. Honestly, I got to uk you and I loved Freshman year was great. I was like, Yeah, I don't want to go anywhere. Just transferring those kind of irrational anyway, So I never left. I'm still there, Junior at a K. That is how I pity you. But I want to go to UK and want to go there because I never want together. So that it was between album and Ikea and I chose what I thought was more reasonable, rational, cheaper, closer to home, new, more people. That's kind of why I chose you. And I thought, you know, if it's terrible if I hate it, I can always transfer to Alabama next year and I didn't hate it, so I didn't leave. If I could go back like I said, I would have toward a lot more campuses. I would have applied a lot more places and I would have really looked more into the area where I was going to school for May. I got on Hey, use campus and I was like, I like this. I like that. It's smaller and I confined my classes and I know people, and I never once really thought to look around Richmond as a place. I really wish I would have done that because I don't like and I'm not saying I know a lot of you guys that was gravity are going to hear you. I'm not saying that it's a bad school or a bad place, but it doesn't fit exactly what I was looking for in a college, and it doesn't fit what I'm looking for after college. Still like, I know I'm gonna leave after college. I don't want to stay enrichment forever. I'm not saying I like Tuscaloosa or Love Tuscaloosa either, and I don't know that there's much of a difference in between the places so definitely wouldn't move to test clothes. That which is where album is that after college either? But I do wish that I would have looked more into the area around where I'm going to school because like I knew I didn't like Lexington, so why would I have liked Richmond just kind of make a list of pros and cons, I guess. Like, uh, no. Wanna go here because of this? But I don't want to go here because of this. And then weigh your options, narrow your list and then make it again. And that will maybe help you make your decision. Trying to think of what questions that you guys have asked me. Housing. I did not look into that at all as faras The dorms go When I moved in, I lived in one of the older dorms that he could you my freshman year. It's got torn down now, and I was like, Holy trapped. There's no way I'm living here, but I'm not being that bad. Community bathrooms. Not bad sweet stall bathrooms. Not bad, Like living in the dorm is ultimately not bad. But I did not look into that at all. If you're worried about living in a bad dorm and you just think it's gonna ruin your college experience, take it from me like it's definitely not. I actually had way more fun living in a crappy, smaller dorm. We were all close. There were 11 floors. I was on the 10th floor, every single girl on each floor, all the way down like every floor. We were all good friends. Not all but like a lot of us were. And like, it was so much more fun then than it is now. And another thing I will say when you're picking a college is if you're trying to decide to live on campus or an apartment 110,001,000% live on campus or you're gonna miss the experience. You're gonna miss meeting people. You're really not gonna have the chance to meet that many people because it's so much easier to meet people when you're on campus all the time versus when you're only there for classes. Okay, I don't know if I've said everything I wanted to say, but I kind of got to just across and maybe, maybe not. Maybe I really just flopped. But I saw this video. I've been like a little, little, little little, like, trying to, like, get my point across as fast as I can because I wanted to, like, make video to help you guys. It's not been very like fun to watch, probably because I've just been talking like super fast, super serious Bones Video's gonna be long and I know what to get my point across. I'm gonna end it now if you have any more questions, or would you? If you would like to see any more videos like this record, answer any more questions or help you guys or fuel medical college Q and A. Leave all your questions dumbbell in the comments. And I will do that because that actually be a lot of fun. Um, yeah, I think I want to do that because they're still watching. Leave any questions you have about college dumb below in the comment. Or you can ask me on Instagram and I'm going to do a college Q and A. So, yeah, I hope you guys enjoy this video. And like I said, if you're new welcome and you can subscribe down below, you knew that promo. Also, my social media's are linked in the description below and helps you guys my next video. Okay. Hi, guys. Welcome back, Thio. My channel today I'm here and we're doing the cute video that you told you guys we were gonna do, like forever ago and ask you all to ask me questions in the comments and Seagram G m's. And then we did like the little ask me a question box on Instagram. I actually got a lot of questions. Are us all down here doing to introduce yourself? Hi. I'm Caitlin, and I'm so glad to be on TV Channel. Yeah, I'm no fee as well and good genes. So she just started channel and I want you guys all go. Subscribers. All likely Channel double. Oh, yeah. Go support her. Subscribe. Like her videos. Comment, letter? No. Tell her she's pretty or something. Is it so hot in here? I'm sweating. I guess we're just gonna jump in with the questions and answer everything. You guys have to know. I'm not gonna leave any out because there's no like that many. But it was like a pretty good amount of actually pretty surprised. I guess I'll just read them, and then we can just both answer separately. So the first question is actually day. You know Gracie O'Connor, which I kind of thought was really funny. But someone asked that because But she is a youtuber here at Alabama. Yeah, actually, I do kind of know her. We have friends in offi that have roommates that are pa five. We've all been I'd like to say place before, so we're like, mutual friend. She's really cool. Really nice girl. Yeah, I do. Sort of kind of know her, I guess. Do you? No. No, I didn't think you'd ever moved with. Okay, the next question really doesn't plot to us. But I got it, like, three times You regret not going through fall rush. And neither of us went here in the fall of snow? No. Also, like, it's a long process. I like We kind of got the easy way out. A good ending. I feel like I I kind of wish I went through full rush, but I've heard a lot of different things about it. So I'm glad that I get to experience Rush, but on the other side of it. And I think that seo being was just like the right thing for me to do. Since a transfer like you and yeah, yeah, I don't get it. I do feel like it would have been nice. Didn't like me. All the other sororities don't just, like, see their houses and stuff. But I feel like I like where I ended up. Like I would have wanted to end up at off the anyways, like it worked out for the vast one. And then we got this question, like, three or four times and it does anyone treat you differently because you see obeyed and didn't go there? No, no, not at all. If anything, like, we're like Like they're little babies like Well, yeah, new babies. If anything, everyone's more friendly because I was there wearing toe talk to you, make you feel welcome. Why did you wait to transfer instead of going to Obama as a freshman? Okay, so I'm from San Diego, California. So I started going to school there because I wasn't ready to move away from home. And then I studied abroad last fall, and then kind of when I was there, I realized I wanted to change my major Thio Sports Broadcasting, which is news media here, and decided to come here because with a better place. Thio So kind of say my what Did you come here as a freshman? And then I was like, I don't think I really want to go seven hours away like the first time I move away from home and I got in the cheerleading you for, like, a hot second. And if I want to transfer later than I will every single day After that I was like, I want to go to him like and then I changed my major to to the same thing. So it's like the best place to be for that. I don't really regret waiting because I like it worked out better. Everything happens for Yeah, definitely timing. But I do wonder what it would have been like to go here like it would have been really wild. So me and my friends go away and then they have moved back home. So I wonder if I would have moved from hunting and wanted to know that Well, here's your favorite Bama football players. You can Cooper's. I was actually trying to think about this when I wrote it down, because like there so many and I feel like the generic answer would be like to, uh, the superhero quarterback, but probably honestly, Jalen Waddle or Jerry duty like they're both just, like so much fun to watch. They're so fast and probably Jalen. I was thinking it was probably my favorite. I don't know. That's hard. I mean, I guess I would say like Thio back Jones are obviously what are your favorite things about them? Yeah. Yeah, who, sir? I guess for sure, Alfie. And that's my favorite. And I mean, I'm really haven't experience game days or anything yet, so I'm super excited for that. And honestly, my major, like I have school. I know I didn't know it was horrors, but Buster that, like, I was actually interested in what I was being taught. Yeah, I have experienced game day because I came down for games before, so I know that's gonna be like, my favorite part as a student. But besides Alfa fee, because, like, I would have no friends and nothing today if I wasn't enough for you. Definitely my favorite. Okay. What is your favorite event you did in your story so far? Jason actually did Black back. And Mike, thank you blow if you want. Yeah, probably. Or a C D. C was actually, like, really fun. That was my first. Yeah, And then the only other one that I have gone to go to was Alfa Freeze. So those were both fun? I think that I loved the sisterhood event. Just like I was just starting become closer with you. Yeah, I had a lot of fun. That was a lot of what made you want to switch your majors to sports broadcasting. We already know. I think we said why I just said that we did. Okay. So, like I was an education major, it was literally the worst thing ever know. Hate to the education majors because it's definitely hard. But like for me, I really don't like kids that much. And so I was always question like, Wait, where you like gonna teach if you don't like kids and also going through school felt like I was being re taught, like everything I had already been taught. And so I was just, like, really bored with it. And I'm, like, the biggest like, sportsman ever. And like I'm always intellect that like Laura religion, like Maria Taylor all that. My mom was actually the one that was like, You're missing your calling. Like, if you don't get into this like, at least try it out, see if you like it. Okay, So at orientation here for education. And I was sitting in there listening to one of the professors, like, tell us about the classes, bored out of my mind. And I went thio the leader, and I was like, Hey, can I just go check out like the communication and she took me. And then we opened the page two news media, which is like, what we are and like she was talking about. And I was like, So I'd like to wait until you see it immediately. Well, I think when I was at my school in San Diego, I was going like the premium the pre med route. Yeah, I was just struggling so much because, like, I don't know, I was not used to balancing, you know, a lot of hard work. And then also meeting new friends. Yeah, and socialize. So it was a lot. And then I was trying to figure out okay. Like what? What am I interested in the sides like nursing and stuff like that. So, um, I realized I love sports and public speaking. And so that's when I realized, What can I do to put those two together and sports broadcasting? Yeah, I get my old school. And that was it. Well, where I'm from, period, you kind of hear, like, doctor, lawyer, teacher, like the basic major. So I went into college, like with that mindset and sports broadcasting was, like, never a question for me. And then when I realized I could actually go to school for that, I was like, What am I doing with my life? You don't want to do that. What do you hope to achieve in your future? Wow. Question way. Catch us on ESPN. Well, that would be something. Oh, my gosh. Yeah, I guess before it's broadcaster. And I mean, you still being with my half of our friends? Freeze friends. I think, like both of our ideal futures, would be, like married, like an NFL player with lots of kids like broadcasting their games. Every son thinks cheering the monde, also reporting them i e. Most embarrassing moment together. Alabama Too many to count. Definitely. Way too many athletically constantly embarrassed ourselves. We love to do it. Do you know any football players? I I feel like every YouTube or Alabama gets this question. Any time I watch Acuna, it's always someone always ask. So I feel like when you don't go here and even when you do go here. But it's like when you don't go here. They are, like, idolized, like they're looked at like friggin Dustin neighbor, like someone really famous like, but, like, they're actually just really normal people. Yeah, that's what we were out. Like. Some of them were just chilling, like it's it's weird. You're like, before you got here like, Oh, my God. And then, like you got here, you're just like, Oh, okay. Yeah. I think we have a few friends that are on the team. Good guys. Okay. Hell of our favorite thing about being in a sorority. Hoped to be recruited in fall. Good luck. Definitely the people, first of all, like I think my favorite thing is like the events, but especially the people, because it's like your sisters, no matter what. So you're kind of stuck with you, but we've also made like our best friends, like in such a short amount of time, Like the best people I've ever met. And the events? Definitely. And lots of free food in the house that way. Have a nice $13,000,000 houses come home to any time. How and why did you choose half a fee? Well, my a lot of my family members are ALF fees. And actually, at my previous college, they didn't have Alfie. It's a smaller college, so they only have a few sororities. But then I didn't end up rushing anyway, So when I got here and I wanted to go through it, I just met some really nice girls and just the right fit from getting I got literally same. I wasn't gonna do recruitment old, and then I was like, Wait like, I don't know anyone here how to make friends. And I had a loss, had a nice class, had a class with a nice girl, 1000 off, and she was like, Oh, you should, like, sign up for C O. B. And then Alfie was like, the first that reached out to me and I went thio two different houses and picked him. It was like an easy pick. The best place to eat at Bama. Let me There was doubt that match, huh? I feel like I think you're pretty, like, strict with what you need to know. And like being healthy and stuff. Sorry, though. Like I like a lot of people would say be fills air like a taco mama or something like that. Talking. Yeah, that's a good place to get. It's gonna go there with friends. So you're talking about Yeah. My little said, Why're you to literally models love you, Taylor, in victory said, Where you also hot? I love you, Victor. You We're running on a question. Someone said, Are you all single? Yes, Way are. I'm not even answering that. I write it down. Wait. There's another question. Likely already. What's your favorite? Maybe it was your favorite thing about that. Yeah. Yeah. Okay. We're dying. Okay, But, you know, we're really done. We're out of questions, so that didn't take half assed long. Is it going to film? It would come in just like zip through it. But it was fun to answer your question. So you guys enjoyed this video. Don't forget to go over to her to know and click the subscriber.

Softer, very Thank God way. Have anything. Yeah, thanks for having me date and what's wrong. Now we are headed over to FERC uh, Ferguson, a big hot spot on campus, but their Starbucks. There's all sorts of food, but good luck in surviving, and that line is really long. Um, there's usually fountain in the middle here, but I don't know. They shut it off a lot, and I think it's really for show, but they don't have it on very often, but I like it. I think it kind of adds a little something. A lot of times you find people out here just doing work. Yet the bottom floor has really male our offices, Starbucks and the soup store, which is where you can get some textbooks. No, I spent a lot of time here. I think I've said that through the ER in the middle of the day, when I don't want I have work to do. I just go upstairs. But there's that line at Starbucks that sometimes it's all the way out the door and out the front door. There's the suit store. That's where you pick up some textbooks. I usually get them on Amazon. It's cheaper and you can rent him expensing, Expensive. That's the mail room. And then now we're about to go upstairs and look at the dining options, which is where I eat lunch, because I don't have a meal plan anymore. Because I live off campus now, and the meal plans are pretty expensive after first in year, so I usually don't get it. You get a nice panorama. Bryant Denny on the wall. That was We're going up the stairs, take a right and there's our food option. You got Auntie Anne's pretzels. You got subway, You got Panda Express, Wendy's we'll get there. I usually pay an express a lot just because you like it, the healthiest option in there, which is probably why I don't do my research on that. And there's not a hope Options aren't those for this for dining. There's the Wendy's right there and, of course, the crown jewels. Check that chick fil A line gets so long e I think I want time waited for half an hour and then I was like, I gotta go. I didn't even get the But you come at the right time on over there. They have decent pizzas. It's Tokyo's or something like that. guys, welcome back to another week of my life. Actually, this is the first real week in my life because I told you that the last one, like the first week of classes block that I did was just kind of weird all over the place wasn't really all we came off. So this week, I wanted to do it right. One of the breed as long Everything I did this week is currently Sunday 1:30 p.m. And I just now got ready and got out of bed and I'm leaving the house. It's been a good weekend. It's been a lot of fun. I've met a lot of people. If you're new here, my name is trade, and I just transferred to the University of Alabama last week. So this is all new for me? Yes. We had a really good weekend. I really wish that I would have logged it, but kind of glad I didn't because I just take the whole experience and But maybe next begin or something, I'll do some blogging. But now I'm on my way to run a lot of errands. The first thing I want to do is go to this pressed juice. Sorry, I want to get a wellness show, and I want to get some juices toe like detox. Get the week started on the right foot, and then I'm gonna go to the grocery store and get some healthy foods and ready to start being ld again start working out. You know, Spring Break's coming up soon. I don't know. I just have a couple of errands to run. I thought about going on nails done because, you know, you see the situation, but I think what I'm gonna do is just come back here and take Ma. What's the word? I can't think of it. The one that picks these off and, like, just let my nails hell and then start getting jail instead of a killer. Because everyone my name is keeping these acrylics on since, like, may cause I just keep putting new ones, and then I'm gonna come back here and start on some homework. So I have one online class that I can literally do any time and finish it, and I'm gonna start on that. I'm gonna start on my other classes. I've already read through the syllabus is and stuff and just total, like get heads. I don't get behind. I just figured out Start this fog today, even though it's Sunday, because you guys appear because I do. You have kind of a busy day and I don't know exactly what the weak will hold. I'm gonna try to get Thio McFarland, which is where, like all the stores and everything is with no GPS. I think I can do it now, but I'm not sure we'll see how that goes. I just got my ex and radio turned back on, but it went off on my mom like, updated R C subscriptions. So although I'm, like, so over but yes, we're gonna be Oh, day I successfully found Wal Mart. So I feel really proud of myself for learning my way around. Now, you guys just don't even know how bad I am with directions. Like, that's a really big deal for me. So I'm gonna get the groceries and the stuff that I need here, we're gonna go get Jews and then go home and clean and do that myth. Okay? I'm home from the store. Got everything I needed. Now I'm gonna go and unload all the stock and we're gonna clean my room and then, yeah, I don't know. I have until it's it's only 2 11 and I don't have plans until seven. So with a whole day to be productive and D school area Good morning, guys. It is Monday morning. I'm ready to get the week started. Once again, I'm trying to be kind of quiet just because there's a lot of people that live here and we're all in different schedules as far school goes, So a lot of them don't have classes on Monday. So I don't want to like screaming at you guys in the wake. Anybody up? Have a really busy week, have a lot going on kind of value all on that later. But today is just Monday. My original plan was to wake up this morning and go to the bookstore and get my books because, you know, we've been in class for almost a week now and I'm a book yet, but I think I'm just gonna go to class. It's a 12 when I get out of 12 50 stop at the store on my way home and then have another cost. Tonight starts at 6 30 I didn't have it last week since we started classes on Wednesday. So that's a new one. It only makes once a week, but it lasts until 9 30 which may look on that. So right now we're just gonna go Spanish? I just got ready. Did the absolute bare minimum just put mascara on? Other than classes in, like, books and stuff, I don't think I have any other like, drastic plans for today. So it's really just gonna be like a chill day. And when I get my books, start on homework, That's the plans. And I'll see you. We'll make it back. Okay, So I just open my laptop for the first time since yesterday and there's this big line. What in the frickin hick is that? And then it's like running through down here to wow, like about Anyways, that's not good. I don't know what to do about it. I think I'm gonna take it to Tech support on campus and see if they can fix it like tomorrow, because I don't have time to do that today, so I'm just gonna deal with it. I think what I'm gonna do is like, I'll show you Just gonna, like, slot everything over until it works. Because I literally cannot see through that anyways to spot that little problem. I've got my little protein shake here, and I'm missing two nails now instead of just one. So I'm gonna go ahead and sell the rest of these offer right now and it's only two o'clock and I think we're going to the gym and I've got 6 30 So my goal is to go to the gym and then go to the bookstore On my way to my last I looked so bad, you won't be having any gonna introduce yourself. I like shame. It's okay. Literally so cold. Like it was so warm last week and then this week it's cold. So held their trouble. I can't do this in front of it. So you don't think we're on facetime anyways? We're being productive and going to do, and we've been saying for like, the past week, the entire weekend, we're like, Let's go to Wayne Long here last week and then just like back cardio. But, like, I didn't actually work out. So we're considering getting a ride back. Yeah, so today we're doing the thing. And, um, what is this Wind was gonna say? Oh, I have cost 6 30 inches a meeting at 6 30 So that's the plan after the gym. But until then, we're gonna work out and up a little workout plan. Now, is it? Truth. So was just like I need to go to detaining, bit like, now that I'm looking at it like it's gonna happen. I have to. Especially when Seo Pale Well, okay, I would be down to Charlie Sprague. Well, they probably think I'm crazy. I get a straight way Have you start laying out in the hard, like when it gets warm? I like this guy. I know next is just so gross outside today and just cold Tomorrow's gonna warm back up. Wait. But anyway, I had a great workout, and hopefully tomorrow can get out of bed because we did cardio and abs and arm. So we have to come back to get a free T shirt. Yeah, if they're really giving out free T shirts of this little thing and we walked up to and they were like, we just gave our life. You should away, But come back tomorrow. We really motivation to come back to the gym tomorrow. So and so do the king. Oh, that too. Okay. I don't know if you guys can hear me over, like the cars in the street, but I just got out of class and it's non 20 PM and I'm freezing hand. It's dark, mama way home. So that causes, like, 15 minutes away from the house. So almost there. But it's really freaking cold. And Marty sore from the gym. Yeah, Holly's You have no one to make it if I make it, and I appreciate it. Hi, guys. Good morning. It is Tuesday morning and have two classes today. And then I have stuff to do to. Not right now. We're just gonna go to class. It's only like 11. 43 that class starts at 12. 30 and it's about a 15 minute walk. So I was thinking about going to the bookstore because I still haven't done that. And I really need thio. I don't know if I have that much Tom, If I left like right now, maybe I don't. But if not, I'm just gonna go on tomato to causes because they're back to back. And then I'll go to the bookstore after that before I come home, because I literally have to go today. So the two guys is that I'm going to right now is Daisy. I'm 1 80 m C 101 I really like both of these costs and buzz of the Professor. So that's really good thing. It's still, like 49 50 degrees outside, and it's still really cloudy. I'm is wearing his black hoody, these cam oh, little women leggings. And then my why's use? Whoa, lighting. So, yeah, we're gonna go to Causton. I'll see you guys some time. It's not like freezing out here, but I didn't check the weather until I walked out here. And it's actually only 40 right now. Some God that I did wear the big coat. It's, like kinda nice. I don't know. It's not too cold because the wind is not blowing. Hi, guys. I just got home. I've been out doing some stuff tonight and I am so tired. It's only 8 30 but I'm frickin exhausted. I don't know what today has done to me. I mean, I guess I have done quite a bit, but I'm also super thirsty. So I'm gonna go in and get some water and take my makeup off and go to bed tomorrow. Wednesday. I only have one class. It's a 12. And then I have to go to the bookstore like I have to go because I didn't go today. So maybe running through costs, I could go do that. And then I just have stuff to do tomorrow evening. But it wasn't like that. He goes and say good night, and I'll see you guys tomorrow on Wednesday. Okay, guys, it is currently 10. 30. And I think I already told you all that I was going to bed because I thought I waas, but when my friends wants to hang out, I haven't seen him yet since I've been here. And I've known him since, like before I came here. Whatever. He's on the Chilean team. So they're about to leave for national soon, so I don't know what I'm gonna get another chance to see him. So we just both had a free Now we're like, and I'll see. I'm going to hang out with some friends. Hopefully, I'll be back before, like midnight. We're like Bob. And not because I don't wanna stay out too late that they do have class smart, even though it's not till 12. I don't like sleeping in a very long so it's better for me to go to bed early. I don't plan on coming back on here tonight. I just want to, like, update. You guys will let you know what was going on, and then I'll fry. I see that in the morning. Good morning, guys. It is Wednesday morning, and, um, I didn't wash my hair this morning because I'm gonna come back and shower after this class. I just want to say hello, and I'm walking to class now. Spanish, You know, only class of the day. And it's actually sewn us out again because the sun's back out. I'm just doing this little sweatshirt and leggings, so that's really great. After Spanish, we're actually going to the bookstore that literally have to go on. Then you guys probably there, or I'm out like a little bit on cape. It's just so pretty up today. All right, you guys be proud of me. I finally went to the bookstore and I got my books except for the one that had to get online and another and I have to get on Amazon. But I was gonna vlog in there, but I was, like, really, really big and intimidating. And there were cops, and I was not expecting that, so I didn't. But I'm going, Okay, All it is literally three clock in today and I just made us coffee. I don't even have awesome. It was to get it out. I just had coffee in the freezer. Morning heavy Thursday. I know. Look super cute with my little head on from that my umbrella above my head. But today's the first day that it's rained on classes since I've been here, and I'm already not a fan, and I just walked out of the door. I mean, I have, like, a 25 minute walk ahead of me because I have to go somewhere and then have to walk back 10 minutes to get to class. This is already, like, so not fun, but you got to do it. I'm just wearing my rain jacket and like a like a sweatshirt under it. Some lucky in the 100 bits. Yeah, that's that. And I'll see you guys after class Hey, guys, it's Jade. Originally, I was planning on filming a what they bring to college video first, but then I decided I was gonna make two separate videos for that kind of thing. I'm going to make a what timbering to college and then the ultimate packing list for college, mainly for like, freshmen dorm rooms, a TC. But then I got to thinking, but that was taking a really long time to make that list. I'm just in the mood to film today, so I decided to make eye what not to bring to call in. And most of this is like personal experiences for things that I brought to college and didn't use and ask a couple of my friends shout out to Savannah and take what they didn't bring the college, and we came up with 12 things that we could have completely went our freshman year of college without having in our ese beauties. Honey dorm rooms that we have number one on the list is do not bring your entire college. Do not bring your entire closet to college. What I mean by this is there's four seasons. Obviously bring your closet as this season's go Unless you're literally gonna be so far away that you can't go home and get more clothes or you don't plan on coming home at all or you're only coming home like on Christmas because you're so far away Bring them out of the seasons. Go. So when you first move in and bring you know the rest of your summer stuff that promise you it's gonna be hot, you're gonna be wearing shorts and a tank top the end. You could take those calls home. Come back, get your fall clothes Come back, Get your winter clothes combat, Get your spring clothes. It works so much better you will not have room and those little bitty closets and drawers that they give you for your entire closet. And more importantly, you're not gonna use your entire closet, because after the first, like waker to have classes, you're never gonna dress up for classes again and literally the all day you're gonna need any remotely nice clothes for is if you have a job, if you have a presentation and if you're gonna be going out things like that. But as far as just going to regular classes you're not even gonna need. Which brings me to number two. Don't bring on your taste. If you're anything like me, you probably have 50 T shirts. When you're going into your freshman year of college, I'm going to go ahead and assume that 90% of those T shirts are from your hospital stone. Bring him Bring like five, maybe four, like Dom, bring a lot of T shirts because I promise you you're gonna get so many notation. So many free teachers. You're gonna buy a new T shirts with your college like name and e T. C. And if you go Greek, you're gonna get so many T shirts and things like that that have, like, you're sort of your year fraternity on it. But you're gonna end up wearing the same T shirts over and over and over again, and you'll have your favorites. The ones that fit the best ones out of the most comfortable does everyone you're gonna wear. You're not gonna need 50 you know, argument 20. You're hardly gonna need Tina for number three. I have doubt bring 30 pairs of shoes, So look as far as bringing your entire closet of heels in when? Just don't do it like bring a pair Maybe too. Don't bring every color of your car verse if you haven't, because you're not gonna wear your not have room for him. Don't bring every flip, flop and sandal antenna shoot like pick your favorites. I promise. That's all you're gonna wear. You're not gonna need more than, like, just as simple amount of shoes for number four. I have a printer. I'm so thankful that I did not bring a printer because number one I would have had nowhere to put it besides literally the middle of my dorm room floor. And secondly, my college provided us with the printer and it was free. We were given $25. I think it was 25 cents for every piece of paper that you printed. I've never got below, like, 18 17 either semester because it starts over after the first semester and it'll said you taught him money on one. Buying a burner, attentive space on having a brother and a ton of money on buying printer paper. Remember, Father, I have don't bring and chair fruit on big bag any excess furniture at all really? Because when I promise you, you will not have room for it. And two, you won't use it because you're gonna be given. Well, I was given a chair to get with my desk, which is where I got ready. That's the only time I used it. Because other than that, I was always on my bed and he rented it. Came over, was always just like we always hung out on my bed and my roommate, her bed, like you're laying the floor. But you're never gonna need excess furniture because one no room and two you want number six? I have Don't duplicate with your roommate. So whenever you get your roommates, Ahmet, you need to contact them, and you need to come up with an agreement. What you're gonna bring in what she's gonna break or hey, basically the only thing that you may need to duplicate it would be a fridge, because I can understand where those mini fridges are kind of small. You would want all your stuff in your fridge and they want all their stuff in their fridge. You will anyone microwave one coffee maker, one anything else like that? Because we had to coffee makers to microwaves. And we ended up taking one home, I think, and then wait, never used the other coffee maker and just sat in my corner of the floor and took up space. So you need to plan ahead with the So you know what? Not to bring in what? Tuber number seven. Don't bring how school apparel don't, David, because when you're gonna immediately stick out of the freshman, it it potentially may or may not get you judged. I'm not saying that I would judge somebody because they had a T shirt on that said like so So hospital someone so cheerleader and stones out like, obviously, I could care less if you were a teacher like that. Your letterman jacket, I think, is so important to stowed away after you graduate, don't ever bring it back out. And where around at college, Thankfully, I only saw maybe take people the entire come that I was at college, where they're Letterman jacket and I was just like, Oh my God, I can't believe that I'm here like that. So embarrassing. So try your best to go head to get a winter coat because another warm, but they're definitely not something to show off. And where? What you getting called for number eight? I have a big stereo system. You won't need it. You won't have room for it. It'll be completely useless unless you have, like, your own house. As far as like a dorm, all you need is a small speaker that you and your friends could listen to you a new shower or when you're getting ready to go out or when you're getting ready for class. If you or one of those people like me that have to listen to music every single time you get ready, a speaker is completely fun. A big stereo system. All you're gonna get is noise complaints and no room in your room in your dorm room because it's gonna be way too loud. Everybody on the floor will be able to hear it, and nobody wants to hear your music, and it's gonna take up so much space. You literally gonna have nowhere to put it. So all you need is a little compact Speaker Atwood worth remembering in that, but not a huge stereo system used for number nine. I have an op pad. I don't even know where my dad is having used it in years. I'm sure a lot of you in the same way as me. But some of you probably think Well, like what if I use it? What if I I need it? You're not gonna if you have I phoned liken often. And a laptop that's call years in the Navy if you don't have one of the other than you may need an iPad. Yeah, but everything that I don't think you're gonna ever use it. It's just something that's gonna be in the way, something that you would have to worry about getting stolen. But overall, if you're not gonna use it for your classes, you're really not gonna need it for liberty. And I have done bring a tent of school supplies because I promise you won't use it. I probably brought, like, five packs of flash cars, and I may have used two packs of those. I brought a bought all kinds of colored pins, black pens, highlighters, pencils, folders. Bonner's no books like I had like, a notebook for each subject had a ponder for like, three subjects had folders. The only thing you're really gonna made is like two notebooks, maybe one binder and folders, because what you'll really what you learn pretty quick is most of your work is gonna be online, and you'll submit it through a computer to like, blackboard or something. And you may need a folder for, like, hand up papers. You may need a notebook if you're one of the people that like to take notes on paper rather than on your laptop, which personally, I'll take upon my laptop because I can talk faster than I can drop. I can't use my fingers anymore because I have more than 10 things on here. So for number 11 you don't need nine functional room decorations. I was kind of bad for this because I want him are going to be very cute decorated and wall decorations are fun if you want to hang lots of pictures. If you want to get like you know, those things are probably longer. You thought cute sayings and hanging on the wall. That's not going to take up any space, because it's gonna be up on the wall. But as far as things like pictures in picture frames, little decorations that you'll put on your desk is literally gonna take up space. You're not gonna have room for it if you're a girl and you're Is that destiny it ready? It's gonna be in your way. When your time. Do you have your makeup all over the place, you're not gonna need it. You really won't have anywhere else to put things like that. Besides the desk that you're even or that you bring. And the last thing I have for number 12 or 12 I'm really not sure what that's gonna look like. A camera that's hard to do. He is. Don't bring a lot of coffee cups, coffee mugs like bottles that you put water or drinks in the kitchen like plights, forks, spoons, knobs, balls that aren't plastic because you'll really only use probably one or two coffee cups like one or two bottles that you'll put your drinks and let when you're on the go. Keep everything plastic because you're not gonna wanna wash your dishes all time, and it's gonna be messy, and it's gonna take up space, and you can just throw classical when I am by new whenever you need and you don't need a lot of bottles and cups and things lying around because you're really not have anywhere to put extra stuff because you're gonna have you're gonna be living in such a small confined space. Thank you guys. So much for watching. And I hope you enjoyed this video. Found it helpful. And if you could think of anything else that you didn't use when you went to college, be sure to comment it down below because it always help other people. If you like this video, be sure to give it a thumbs up and subscribe to see more for me whenever outpost, because I'm so unorganized and Hey, guys, look, come back to my channel and, um, doing another sit down video, which is like, What the heck were really branching out this summer, Theo? Today we're gonna do another video that has been so highly requested from so many of you ever since I transferred Alabama. So for those of you that have never been here before, First of all, there's a little red button dumbbell, and you should probably click it and hit. Subscribe. Second of all, if you don't know me, my name is Jade. Some people think it's pronounced JD because of the wine. It's not, but I understand where you're coming from. I guess so, if you don't know me, I did used to go to Eastern Kentucky University. I am from Kentucky and a transfer to the university of album of this past spring semester as a junior. But it was the middle of junior year. He transferring, plus changing my major. We're not transferred that late in the college put me back a little bit, so I feel like I'm kinda in Ma second semester junior year starting this semester. I don't know. This is really confusing. You probably don't care. I know what you're here for. Here it iss I wrote a lot of things down in this notebook because I know I wouldn't be able to remember the mosque. It sounds like I'm reading things off. Literally am. And the last thing I wanted to say before we get started, I forgot. So let me think about that really quickly. My friend Caitlin just started YouTube channel, and she also goes to be Emma. She also transferred this muster. She is also an Alfa fee. And she's also sports broadcasting major. So she just started to you too, General. But yesterday or today Before And we decided this morning that we're gonna film a video on this channel so I can kind of shot her out. And it'll probably be at the end of this month. And I want you guys asked me questions for that video. So it's gonna be a Q and A. Ask questions about Alabama. I ask questions about our lives. Whatever you want to know. Ask questions about Alfie questions about being in a sorority, questions about transferring questions about our measure, which is sports broadcasting. Anything else you want to know? We're gonna film that at the end of this month when we both go back to jail together, you can ask in my instagram dams, which is right here, Follow me. If you haven't already, it's a good time. And then you can also ask in the comments Blood. We're gonna answer every question moving on to the video. What you're all here for. You guys have asked what the biggest differences are in going E k u versus when. Obama. I think this is a good video, even if you don't really go to either college nor care about either college for a smaller college versus a larger college. So Ikea use not lock community college. It's not like a super small private college. It's definitely university, but I'd say the enrollment is about half of eloped them. I think album is like 30,000 something any K use, like 15 or 16,000 something, which is still pretty good sized college. But it is definitely a lot different than 30 plus 1000 students. First thing that I wrote down that's different for me personally, and this is probably not for everybody, but this was definitely what I noticed the biggest difference was right off the bat and that thought, Eddie K. U. I felt like I knew everybody, and obviously I did not know 16,000 people. But everybody is like the community who you hang out with. I guess so. I knew, like the entire Greek community, my Hershman year. I lived in the Greek tower, so I lived with, like all the sorority girls and all the fraternity boys where across from us, I made friends with them than friends with their friends. I went to all the fraternity parties. I went to the bar. You know what I mean? So there's not, I guess it's not all Greek, because I didn't have a lot of friends that were also in that community, that war Greek. So I guess you could call the party community, which sounds kind of bad, but I really care. So I knew everybody in that community. If that makes sense, the best way I know to explain that to you guys is if I would go to a frat party, I would walk in and know every single boy in that fraternity and what I know them well and like, you know, hug them and have a conversation. And then I would know majority of the girls that were partying there as well, Especially once I got older and I started a lot. You know, I was a freshman. You goto all the parties and then you kind of start doing the limit down. You have your favorites and you go to those. You know, you start to get familiar with all the girls that go to those as well, so you kind of walk in. And no, almost everybody at Alabama that is not the case at all. I'll talk about their frat parties in the differences and frat parties in a minute. But just like walking in and not know in a single soul, basically, you know, you show up with occasionally you're gonna run into one or two people that, you know, maybe you might know a couple of frat boys in that fraternity. It's different for everybody. And I wasn't there for swap season, so I don't really know as many, and I also wasn't there as a freshman. But it's different. You don't know everybody and you barely know anybody. If that makes sense, there's definitely a lot more people that go to every party. So you're not gonna know everybody going to the bars of the cage. You is kind of the same way just because you walk in and it's all the same people all the time. And there's also on Lee to really popular bars. Three if you wanna branch out if you're really 21. So I would say that's the biggest difference for me. It was going from knowing everybody to knowing nobody. This is gonna jump all around. I'm gonna try to keep it as organized as possible. So even like outside of parties on campus, in the dorms, you kind of always know somebody somewhere like If I would go work out at the rec center, there are always being multiple people that I knew at Ikea you not the case, it out of him at all. You will probably know at least like one person in your class is that he? Can you not the case at all in Alabama? But there are bigger classes, Obama. And so you're more likely to know kind of like maybe a girl that's in your sorority or somebody at versus, like there's a classy, like 10 people. Ikea, you in the class was like 300 people. Obama. Then you're probably gonna know, like one person in that class out of 30 100 verses. You might not know someone in that group of 10 if that makes any sense. So since we're on the topic of parties, I might as well just go ahead and go on other things. I wrote about that and then I'll move on to some other things, not life in general. Obama is way different. I wouldn't even call it a night like because, like, it's not always at night. So we have this thing called the Strip, and if you'd been there, you know what it is. And it's like, literally a strip of bars, and it's right beside Brian didn't like it's like Brandon, and then you go a little bit and then you start the Strip, and then it goes into downtown, where there are more. It's always popping. There's so many. They're all always crowded. Like if it's Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday. It doesn't matter. They're always crowded. There's always an event going on. There's daytime events. I guess it's just because the size difference in campus and whatnot like there's always gonna be more people. That's probably a good reason What? But it's definitely always something going on like that. Like I will come home from class. I have to pass a rounders on my way home and it'll be a Wednesday and there will be music like bumping on the rooftop. And I'm not godly like, Do you people ever take a break? Eddie, you? There's only two. Like I said, it's kind of like everyone decides to go out or no one decides to go out. You'll have, like your handful of people that go out for Carrie of Young Tuesday and your handful of people to go out for whiskey Wednesday, your people to go out like on Thursdays when nothing's really going on. And then, you know, like a lot of people go out Fridays and Saturdays, but not every weekend. Like some weekends, it's frat parties. It's kind of one or the other. But Obama, you have multiple multiple frat parties going on in Tom, multiple people at the bars at a time, and it seems to always be packed out with like thousands of people at each place, kind of crazy how it works. I really don't understand it, but that's a huge difference for me. Okay, so the last thing I want to say about the party's frat parties, any K u you have probably 5200 people, Max if they have a huge party, but normally about 50 50 to 70 I guess at Alabama, frat parties are crazy packed out. They have these huge mansions and thousands of people at the parties in, like a lot of time. Still higher DJs or like people will come in. We have one weekend where Walker Flocka was at one frat check West was at another fat snake hips or something, and somebody else. I don't know. We had that. And then, like you have all these start ease and it's just like vast amounts of people, like so many people versus parties, that he kur a lot smaller. Which is, of course, because the sides in college and also Greek off is like not really as big of a thing at UK you as it is in Alabama, Of course, just because album has the number one Greek off in America or whatever it is like the biggest. I think so. That obviously makes a lot of sense. We have The house is for frats and sororities at Obama and, like you don't have houses that he k u So that's obviously plays a factor in, like where they're gonna have parties. That he kept you a huge thing that really caught me off guard when I went to my first darty or party at frat parties is they have, like, actual security that worked the doors, police security and they check your Addie as you go in. And that was like, not a thing at Ikea. You just have people that are in the frat working door just to make sure somebody that's like, not in the frat doesn't get in. But one thing that I was anybody Cayugas. We have Dee Dee's. So you do have people that, like pick you up and take you to the party when Alabama, you have to uber or walk, but we don't have a burner German, not really not like big Anyways, you might have a couple people that do it. Yeah, that's like a huge difference is the sides and then the security that really caught me off guard the first time that ad ever had to give them that. I'm going along with that, I guess, would be the size I've already touched on this that you can use half the population. I would say the campus is probably 1/4 of the saws use. Campus is kind of one big circle electric for to it as like on this side of the main road, you have one dorm you have campus. So it's like the library, all the other dorms and then all the classes and then the rec center and the football field. It's all right there in a big circle like you. It's one road. It makes a huge circle around it, and that's all it is at Alabama. I still don't know all of campus. I know my way. I only had class in three buildings this year, too, were like rocks at each other, and I know my way to those, and that's about it. I can drop around campus now the most part, for the most part, but I could not have classes in places that I've never heard of or never been to next semester, so I'm gonna have to figure that out. It's just, like, so much bigger. It's so much different and so much harder not going your way around because there is so much. All I haven't no is like I fucked a quad kind of sinners. Everything and everything goes off of that, which is like the best way I know how to explain it. And then, like Eddie K. U. I would say the library centers everything and everything goes off of that campus. Size in itself is 1,000,000 times bigger, and not even that. But Tuscaloosa in itself is so much bigger than Ikea, then Richmond Richmond only has, like so much, Tuscaloosa probably has about like Lexington. I would say in Lexington is about 30 minutes from rich parents. So if you want to go to these places, you can't have to drop the Lexington, which isn't like that big of a hassle. But it's all kind of like right there in Tuscaloosa. More to do more to go to more things. More restaurants Maur literally everything. It's just a bigger too. It's a bigger city. Even read the other day that Tesco's and now has like more people living in it than Birmingham. Next, every dumb classes. So I don't have any Jenna's. I finished all those that a k you so I've never been in like freshman classes. Obama. But I've seen pictures camera just shut off. I've seen pictures of those lecture halls and they're huge. What? I don't know how many students they seek, but I probably said, like 400 or so even like me not being an engine, as I do have classes with, like, 200 plus people in them. So that's like a really big difference. When you got a K you, you're Jim Ed. Classes are like 60 people. I feel like I had a science class one time would like. It could have been anywhere from 40 to 60 because I don't remember exactly, But there was like a good amount of students in there, But then I definitely had way more classes where there were like 10 10 to 20 people. Max in my class, and I have one class. I actually have two classes where they have probably left 30 kids in them, and that's Spanish, and then a J. C. M. Class and that was like, not really what I expected. I kind of figured all my classes would have, like at least 100 people. But I guess once you get into your major glasses, it does condensed the sizes and stuff, even though, like it's definitely different. There's still a lot of similarities there with. Once you get further into your major, you have smaller class is kind of the same both, and I feel like a lot of people think that a smaller college year professor is more likely to know your name or you're more likely tablet one on one time with them. And personally, I feel like my professors. Obama always left the opportunity to come to their office hours. I had the opportunity to make a connection with them just as much as identity. Kate, you When you're in a class with 10 people, it's easier for the professor to remember you to talk to you, to know your face versus when you're in a class with 203 100 people. So if you want a connection with your professor and you go to a big college, I would say just like, take that extra time to maybe, like, talk to them after class or come to class early, sit in the front row and go to office hours. I don't think that's really much of a difference that people always expect, because I always thought that, like I would have a better relationship with my professors at a smaller college. That's really not the case. I wrote something else down about that. Let me find it. Oh, I said. A lot of professors at them are grad students, so I had to in five classes. That's kind of weird ratio have to two professors that are still in graduate school, and I know a lot of people that do have cried students as their professors. And I never had that Ikea you. I did have labs and stuff with grad students that would help, but it was always like actual professors that taught my classes, and maybe that was just me. But out of two and 1/2 years, I never had, like one person that was in graduate school, be my professor for a class. I mean, it's not really, like, weird or like a difference or anything, but I kind of thought It was cool and they pay for your graduate school if you teach that class for them. I just wrote down. Obviously, sports. I don't think I really have to touch on this. Too much sports of IKEA. You. I went to one football game, my entire two and 1/2 years of going there. I went to to basketball games and that was it. And I love sports. They're just, like, not as big as this at a call. It's like that. And that's just the fax at Alabama lack. It's Alabama. Everyone in Tuscaloosa in Alabama, eight sleeves and breathes football, and that's just how it is. I haven't even spent at the school if they're in football season, but I've been to games before. I've been to the tailgates, and I went to a day this semester. I went to basketball games this semester. Everyone loves softball. Everyone loves baseball. Everyone loves golf. It's like it doesn't matter what the sport is. It's just a sports community. Like everyone comes together, pulls for whatever sports playing that is Alabama luck. It's just a huge is a big sports environment, and that's why I love that my major is fourth broadcasting and I go to Mama because it's very appreciated there. And there's a lot of good classes and things and professors and speakers and everything that comes along with it. Yeah, I just put obviously sports because I don't think Obama would be what it is without sports and particularly without football, because, I mean, you can just definitely read the fax that, like this school itself in the town itself, has grown so much just since Nick Saban got there. And it's always been a football school, like we've always been good if it but not always. But like we've had history, like with Bare Bride and with other national championships is definitely a sports school versus Ikea, you, which is not at all sports school unless you make it. I mean, you could definitely go to the events and stuff, but it's just not like prioritized everyone. Obama loves Obama and wants to be there. I wrote that down because it's so true. I feel like if you go to Obama and you don't want to be there, you transfer and you're gone, and if you don't transfer, then you're there and you love it It's not one of those things like you're forced to be there. So many people come from out of state. Somebody people come from around the world and somebody will come from in state. But if you're there, you love it. You love Alabama, support the school. You love the people, you love the camp, you love it and you're obsessed with it. I guess in a way, that's really not the case for UK. You you definitely have so many people that do love it that I also know of a lot of people that hate on it. They love it and they hated at the same time, You know what I mean? That was kind of me, always lived the people at UK. You hated the campus, hated Richmond and hated a lot of things about it. But I love the people and I would never change. Go on there my 1st 2 years because of the people. I did meet everyone. Obama just is kind of obsessed with them as that makes it so it kind of makes it a happier, better environment to be in. I don't know. I don't want this video to seem like I'm throwing in the shade of a K. You. It's just my experience. So if you're going to, can you like, don't take this the wrong way? I also wrote down that it feels more like college at Alabama. It's like the college town with Jack on it touched on and me and my friend, we make a joke that we're living in a bubble. It's like Tuscaloosa is a bubble, and that's what we live in. That's where we go to school. Like I don't know if that makes any sense. It's the prettiest campus ever. I don't think anyone can argue with that. Like if you visit, you're gonna have probably fall in love with the campus. I went on my first visit in eighth grade, and that's when I was like, This is where I wanna go to school. But just like everything that comes along with it, all the experiences, all the opportunities, like I said, game days, parties, the whole town, it's just it feels like I'm getting the full college experience that I felt like I was missing out on it. He kept you. Everyone's different. Everyone wants different things. I personally wanted to go to a big school and get the full experience like this. And so that's kind of what I feel like I'm getting now that I didn't have before they kill you. So a big thing for me. I already knew a lot of people. Okay? You A lot of people went to college with me when I graduated at Ikea, you and a lot of people came after my freshman year from Harlan to Ikea. You at Bama? I knew no one. Absolutely Nobody was out like, close enough friends with to be like, Hey, I'm transferring Alabama. Can we please hang out like I didn't know anybody? So I guess the comfort of that Ikea He was kind of one of the reasons I went there in the first place. It was so nice to have people as a freshman coming in that I already knew that, went there and have people coming in with me so that we could always kind of, like, go places together and like we made our own friends. But you never had to make them alone because you always had people with you. So that's probably honestly like this second biggest difference for me was like no and so many people coming into it versus not knowing anybody all coming into it. Which is probably how a lot of you feel that are going Obama that are coming from out of state. You might know, look, one or two people, but vast majority of you aren't gonna know anyone. Versus if you were to stay home in your own town or your own state, you would know so many people at that college. Another thing that was just a personal thing for me is that a k u. I was barely two and 1/2 hours away from home. So if I wanted to make a day trip, I could make a day trip. Now, Obama, I'm seven hours away from home, so I can't make a day trip. I can't even make a weekend trip unless I really push it. What I really want to. But there's just no point in that for me, as a really big difference is being so close versus so far away. The weather is so different this winter, we probably only had a handful of bad, bad, bad days where I was, like, really cold like needed gloves and a big jacket. But even then I still felt like it never got as cold as they always gets any k u in the winter. And like, Yeah, we do have cold days where you have to, like, bundle up not many, and it gets warmer so much faster it gets. It gets colder so much later in the year and warmer, so much faster. So we probably just have a December and January that's really cold. But even in those months, like you still have warm days. I remember on the national championship not I had on my to a jersey and jeans with holes on the front and back, and I wasn't called it all that. Not that was January 7. The weather is way different. Eddy Kay, you. It definitely doesn't really get warm until the end of April or May, but you do have, like, warm days. So I guess it's kind of opposite if that makes sense and it starts getting called in like October, even though you still have warm days, October, November, December. It starts getting cold in October, versus it's still like extremely hot in Alabama. I personally don't like the cold weather, so being down there makes me a better, happier person. And the last thing I write down, which is also a big difference, is the culture and the diversity of people Obama versus the people that he kept you Like. I said, most people that you care you come from in state or as a rounding state, like a lot of people come from Ohio and the and the things like that you do, you do have your people from out of state, and you do have a couple people from out of the country. But for the most part, everyone comes from in state or very close by. So the culture and the diversity isn't very large, very different. Everyone's kind of not the same kind of the same, you know what I mean? There's definitely still different culture diversity there, but not half is much Obama elders in the South, and people come from all over the states. I know very popular states that come our California, Florida, Jersey, New York, Maine, Chicago Marshall Noise. So many people come from Chicago. People just come from everywhere and then yet you don't people come from out of the country. You have our troops that come from out of the country for all different sports. You have recruits from different states. I have a girl that I made really good friends with more my classes and she was adopted from Russia so that you do have, like so many different people and different tops people you get to meet just from so many people coming from like all over the world versus everyone coming from the same state. I think it might be more out of state students than in state students now or it's like 50 50 or like really close to that. Don't quote me cause I don't know. But I'm pretty sure there's a ton about state students effeminacy, and that is everything I wrote down. The city is getting so long it's gonna take me so long to edit. But I do hope I answered all your questions, and I hope that gave you a better insight in a smaller school versus a larger school. Ikea. You versus Obama. You guys have been wanting to see this video literally since the we got transferred, and I was like, I promise I'll make it after my first semester, and here it is. So hope you guys enjoyed it.

I love coming back here every year, so let's get ready. Okay, you guys. So I think that's it for this, uh, campus tour of the University of Alabama. I hope you enjoyed seeing this beautiful, Came past through my eyes through the eyes of my friends and peers. And to give you one last piece of advice before I go, I think if if I had to choose something for somebody to have told me last year before I came into college, I would have wanted to hear that it's okay to embrace change. And it's okay because changes happen, and this changes your good. So you have to be ready because college is nothing like high school. You make it here, and I know me personally. And a lot of my friends were just shocked at how different it was here. And it's a good different, so just be ready for that. Just know that your life is about change as you know it and keep your grades up. Don't drop. Don't drop the ball first. Mr. Like me and a few of my friends kind of started to do towards the end, we got a little lazy kind of didn't try as hard as we could have, so just come and strong. Finish your first semester at college strong and just be ready for the rest here college career. Okay, so I'm gonna give you a tour of the new freshmen dorms. Alabama. These are the newest storms on campus and their their traditional style, but kind of like kind of like a little better than traditional because each room has its own bathroom in it. It's not where, uh, there's community bathrooms or anything like that. So it's just two girls to a room. All girls on this floor, and each room has its own bathroom. So go ahead and show a little bit about it. You've got an area right here where everyone can kind of sit and watch the news or TV or whatever, got another rule area with the TV. And here's a laundry room. It's kind of small, so there could potentially be fights about that. Enemies. Some couches. As you can see, it's really secure because you have to have a card to get into right here. Some more little study booths. You know? See, there's one more thing I have to show you about this story. We're gonna pass by TV again. I passed by the little living area. These couches air So comfortable, by the way, I laid on one the other day and I could just fall asleep. Yeah, Got some more dorm's over here. And here is a little study room where me and my friend are about to study. Okay, so I just walked into the dining hall, so I'm gonna be a little tour. So here's where everybody sits, Tio. A ton of chairs is also more room upstairs you see over there. It looks like spaghetti, but there's tons of food. You walk around the corner. Salad bar and outside you can sit outside and eat if you want. It's a really pretty view. Right over there is the, uh, new freshman dorm. And then right over there, I think, is Riverside. No lakeside like side because I'm in, like, side dining right now. So here is the desserts today. Pizza Over here, here. And they have ah station where you can pick what you want. Put it in a little box, and, um, the chef cooks it right there for you. I like that a lot. My friend actually just ate that. So now I'm taking you upstairs, which upstairs there are two different things. There's Duncan Donuts. There's a place called Sola and Solo. It's like Mexican food and stuff like that, and you can use your dining hall swipes for that.
